Patient Comments (1)
in Alpharetta, GA |
My mother has been seeing Dr. Shepherd at the North GA Diagnostic Clinic in Gainesville for four years, since age 89. Unlike some other practitioners, Dr. Shepherd has always made a point of talking directly WITH Mom vs. talking ABOUT her with whoever in the family is there. Mom's kidney functions are not deteriorating - they IMPROVED within the first 6-months and Ist year and have remained stable. Mom has several chronic conditions; Dr. Laura coordinates well with all other practitioners.
